A Master of Ceremonies (M.C.) is an important person for tying everything together so the day or night runs smoothly.
The MC traditionally does the following:
Announce the arrival of the married couple.
Introduce the speakers.
Announce the cutting of the cake.
Announce the first dance.
Inform the guests when it is time to say farewell to the bridal couple.
The Master of Ceremonies should ideally be someone who:
Has the ability to speak confidently so they can keep things moving along with a humorous comment where appropriate.
Has a great sense of humor.
Is a confident public speaker and is used to such occasions.
Has a strong voice and an extrovert personality.
If you don’t know someone appropriate for the role, we will easily take on the responsibility, we are in our element as the DJ and the MC.
What the Master of Ceremonies will Need
A good M.C. should be supplied with a list of speakers and the order in which they will be speaking. You should also provide a bit of background on each speaker to enable the M.C. to introduce them properly.
The M.C. should make a point of meeting all the speakers early on at the reception so that when they are introduced there is no confusion about who will be speaking. The M.C. also needs to know who the key people are the reception venue so that they know exactly who to liaise with. For example they may need to cue the musicians or the D.J. before the bridal waltz.
The Master of Ceremonies Speeches
The Master of Ceremonies’ job is to start the speeches on the right note and then ensure the smooth flow from one speaker to another. Their comments should be very short and should not try to take over from the main speakers.
